To all wonderful mom readers here at Woman Scribbles, happy mother’s day! It feels different saying it from a mother’s perspective. Just last year, I gave birth to my first baby.I was aware of all the changes that were about to take place in my physical world. And I was actually right; I had more tasks but more laughter.I had sleepless nights but I get paid off with baby cuddles in the day. I had messy house, unmade bed and lots of missed dental appointments but I have never had intense joy just by seeing little smiles back at me and feeling little hands on my cheek. And now that little bundle is now a year old! I have to admit I get weepy just thinking about how much she has grown.
Being a mother has changed me so much. I learned how it is to consider the comfort of others more than mine. I realized that this is the time when you significantly use the word “I” less because you start to use “her” and “she” more often.
This is also a time when I begin to make myself meet my own needs, go after what I want and do the things that give me fulfillment.I know it sounds contradicting from the ones I said earlier but I find that I am more able to take the role of motherhood if all my needs are met.We all should somehow nourish ourselves to become more loving and fulfilled.
I guess the most important thing that I have learned is that as my baby grows, I grow too. Motherhood is a continuous learning and while it is never easy, it is always more than fulfilling. That is a guarantee.
Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you are having a great time as much as I am.

Happy Mother’s Day, Sanna! Great to see you joining CommEx again!!!And oh, happy birthday to your baby girls! The cake as usual looks yummy 🙂
Happy birthday to your baby girl! Time certainly flies 🙂 Needless to say, a mother’s role is the most humbling, demanding and fulfilling especially as you try to juggle the various responsibilities you need to do at home. And what is most enjoyable in the journey is the myriad learning you accumulate 🙂
